USAID NSV project part time link worker Radhey Shyam (aged 44) shows off his 'no sperm certificate', which he received today, 1.5 months after his NSV (7 June 2011). He has 4 children and is very happy about his decision to have an NSV. He decided to do NSV after being approached by Jagroshan Sharma, another part time link worker who works under the tutelage of Dr. Meenal Mehta of USAID. He did NSV because he didn't want his wife to have to spend 3 months in recuperation after a tubectomy as the household chores will be neglected. He also did it because he was spending a lot of money on condoms. Photo by Suzanne Lee / Panos London
